Grove of American Chestnuts Found!
Looks like a whole grove of American Chestnut trees have been found! These are notable not only because there's a number of them and they appear to have escaped the blight, but also because they are at the extreme southern limit of the species and near FDR's "Little White House" in Warm Springs, Georgia.

Update: The original article states that there are six trees in the stand, but today on NPR the discoverer mentioned that a cursory walk around the area turned up another one nearby, so it's possible that there may be a considerable pocket of them. He hypothesized that the dry microclimate in the area may make it difficult for the blight pathogen to survive.
